For their performance, Cage the Elephant served up both the title track and “Ready to Let Go”. The band’s “Social Cues” roll-out in particular saw frontman Matt Shultz shed layer after layer of clothes. He started first with something that resembled a chic mosquito net hat (who knew such a thing existed?) and eventually was swallowed up by his stretchy black pants.
The late-night TV gig comes alongside the announcement of new, rescheduled European tour dates for early 2020. Cage the Elephant previously had to cancel their original tour plans abroad after guitarist Nick Bockrath suffered a brutal onstage injury this past June.
